Originally debuting in 1994, Vengeance of Vampirella portrayed a more savage and feral look at the Daughter of Drakulon. Now, for the 50th Anniversary of Vampirella, original series writer Tom Sniegoski (joined by the incredible art of Michael Sta. Maria) is back and issue #1 features a host of incredible cover artists. Set 25 years after the initial series, Vampirella is Dead!? Long Live Vampirella! Humanity holds on, but barely, the playthings and slaves of a multitude of supernatural monstrosities that have made the earth their own. Mistress Nyx continues to rule the planet, her Chaos Lords reigning over the various regions of the world, but she is getting bored – there’s no one to challenge her! That is, until a small, but determined rebellion finds what could be their savior or seal their doom!

This new series – and anniversary event – is not to be missed!

Red Sonja Against the Hordes of Hell in Age of Chaos this January

Chaos! comes to Hyboria in December’s Red Sonja: Age of Chaos from Dynamite!

This fight and fright-filled new limited series is written by returning Sonja scribe Erik Burnham. Joining him on art is the one and only Jonathan Lau. Burnham is bringing the present into the past, with a Chaos! invasion of the Hyborean Age. A cosmic level spat between Mistress Hel and Lady Demon leaves Sonja and characters like Chastity, Evil Ernie, Purgatori, Jade and more stuck in the middle. Alliances will be made to combat this mayhem and great evil, but Sonja may have to resort to something she never would have guessed – enlisting the help of her sworn enemy, Kulan Gath!

New readers can come into this series with no prior knowledge. However, fans may recall Erik contributed to the previous ongoing Red Sonja volume helmed by Amy Chu and Carlos Gomez. The series’ central arc, titled Worlds Away, threw the She-Devil with a Sword into the far-flung future of modern-day New York City. That fish out of water premise allowed for fan-favorite scenes of levity and new challenges for the heroine. This time around, Sonja has the home advantage. Burnham has teased that there may be callbacks and Easter eggs in this new series for fans of that previous run.

For a series with so many fan-favorite characters, Dynamite is treating fans to a cornucopia of covers blending the sword and sorcery aesthetic of Sonja, the blood-soaked terror of Chaos! and the epic crossover aspect of the series! Leading the pack is painter and Dynamite legend Lucio Parrillo, depicting Sonja and Purgatori locked in mortal combat and drawing blood. Alan Quah captures that crossover chaos with nearly the full roll call on his cover – but there are more surprises in the series of course! Ale Garza and Cian Tormey add their special touch to covers. While the Hyrkanian Hero is represented in cosplay by Shannon Kingston, following her run on covers for Birth of the She-Devil.

Dan Abnett Heads to Barsoom for Dejah Thoris

Dejah Thoris is back in a brand new ongoing series by sci-fi superstar Dan Abnett, launching this December!

Writer Dan Abnett and his fellow creators are heading to Barsoom to chronicle the latest tales of Dejah. His co-pilot for this mission is artist Vasco Georgiev. The crew is rounded out by colorist Dearbhla Kelly and letterer Simon Bowland. Barsoom has always been a dying world, teetering on disaster, but it may be closer to death these days. Dejah Thoris has been many things in life; a wife, a mother, royalty and an adventurer. Now her role as a scientist must take center stage, as she attempts to investigate why her homeworld is freezing. Other skills come into play when it’s discovered that political factions may be hiding the secrets of this global catastrophe. Glittering palace intrigue and visceral adventure abound in this new series, as Dejah joins her fellow Women of Dynamite “trinity” of Vampirella and Red Sonja.

Besides her kickass abilities, acute intelligence, leadership abilities and charm, Dejah Thoris is of course renowned for her beauty. Dynamite has assembled a team of four cover artists for this first issue that are upheld by fans as masters of beautiful heroines. Painter Lucio Parrillo is a natural choice, with his decade-long attachment to the franchise, having drawn countless covers for Dynamite’s first foray into Barsoom. On the other hand, Joseph Michael Linsner has tragically only drawn one Dejah cover before, so Dynamite is correcting this egregious wrong. Even worse than that, Billy Tucci has plenty of experience drawing powerful women, but has never drawn the Princess of Mars. Completing the set is a breathtaking wraparound cover by the one and only Adam Hughes! Dynamite will also be offering an extremely limited black-bagged risqué version for those who want to appreciate Dejah’s full beauty in a manner more in line with Burroughs’s original vision. Cosplayer Mai (@maidenhellxo) returns to Dejah with another cover and the first cosplay cover on a solo Dejah Thoris series!

Know also, O prince, that in the selfsame days that the Cimmerian did stalk the Hyborian Kingdoms, one of the few swords worthy to cross with his was that of Red Sonja, warrior-woman out of majestic Hyrkania. Forced to flee her homeland because she spurned the advances of a king and slew him instead, she rode west across the Turanian steppes and into the shadowed mists of legendary.
